search is based on the metadata on the item pages. if the metadata is not there or is different you will not get the results you want. crafting search queries is a big of a craft and you need to be both a little creative and understand lucene search and boolean operators as well as the metadata structure to really refine search.

as an example, using the query "o henry awards AND mediatype:texts" returns 93 results which i suspect a what you are after:
